Let point (0,0) be a, point(2,0) be b and point(0,-2) be c
 
A given number of points are said to be concyclic if they lie on the same circle
i.e. they all are equidistant from a given point
 
We know that the vertices of a square are equidistant from the centre of the square
Therefore, they are concyclic
 
On plotting the points a, b, c , we come to know points a and b are equidistant from each other
Also points a and c are equidistant from each other and angle(bac) is a right angle
 
We can see that our points combine to form an isosceles right triangle (which is half of a square)
To make points a, b, c and (k, -2) concyclic we assume them to be the vertices of a square
 
Let us see if our condition is possible
 
The difference between the y values of c and a is 2
The difference between the x values of a and b is 2
The difference between the y values of b and (k, -2) is 2
\therefore The difference between the x values of (k, -2) and c MUST BE 2
\Rightarrow |k – 0| = 2
     k – 0 = 2
     k = 2
